Donald Trump is so desperate to hold onto the attention he's received over the past four years that he plans to hold a campaign event on Joe Biden's inauguration day next year.
The Daily Beast reports, “According to three people familiar with the talks, the president who refuses to acknowledge he lost the 2020 election, as he clearly did, doesn't just have close advisers and confidants over you possible run in 2024 to recapture the White House, but talked about the peculiarities of a campaign start. "
Those specifics include the possibility of a Trump 2024 campaign event at the time Biden is sworn in as the 46th president.

Donald Trump's infinite tantrum
What is happening now – an incumbent president who clearly and decisively lost the presidential election, caused tantrums, and cried fraud for being too weak to accept defeat – is unprecedented and dangerous.
But Donald Trump's behavior won't deteriorate until Joe Biden takes over as President and moves into the White House in January.
Not only does Trump not intend to do what all past presidents have done – participate in the peaceful transfer of power by attending the inauguration of his successor – but he will use whatever leverage he has to put a wrench in everything throwing what Biden is trying to achieve in the next four years.
Ultimately, Donald Trump is hoping he can both stay safe and out of jail – two things that aren't guaranteed – to lead another presidential campaign based solely on the myth that the last one was stolen from him.
